A Coruña (ES) - St. Malo (FR) - IJmuiden (NL)

08 August - 23 August 2018

* Last place available – contact info@windseeker.org before booking * Leaving A Coruña, you will sail the Bay of Biscay. Its deep waters show us often a lot of sea mammals, such as dolphins and whales.You will visit a lovely French town St.Malo and stay there for at least one day. Next, you go on to 1 or 2 of the Channel Islands. Depending on weather and wind you can decide which one. Also Dieppe, along the French coast, is a nice place to stay for a while. Then you proceed to the Netherlands. On the 23rd of August we will enter the locks of IJmuiden. Open for all windseekers, minimum age 15 years.

Ports

A Coruña is a port town in the north west of Spain. Here you will find the Tower of Hercules, a lighthouse that has been in operation for 1.800 years! The town itself is an affluent commercial and tourism hub, with plenty of things to see and do. Visit the popular beaches, explore the city centre, or sample some of the many cultural activities. The Aquarium Finisterrae lets you explore the marine life of the region. But if you prefer your fish on a plate, A Coruña’s restaurants can help you out.

IJmuiden, on the west coast of the Netherlands, is the water gateway to Amsterdam. Cruise ships, cargo vessels and pleasure yachts pass through its busy locks every day while the IJmuiden marina provides an excellent shelter from the North Sea storms. IJmuiden offers a wide, sandy beach that is popular with windsurfers and kitesurfers. Behind the dunes you’ll find a small nature reserve, perfect for a hike or a run. IJmuiden’s restaurants serve fresh fish, straight from the local market.
